    I think the amount of carbs is what makes it bad. I was going to us it, but after reading the book, I get the feeling that almond flower (organic) is what they recommend.

    Trying to make pizza dough… but the almond flour is expensive and less calories?? Thanks for your thoughts.

    I meant the self-rising flour has less of everything except carb’s and is cheaper…. only 3 weeks in but trying to come up with new recipes.

    I would not be to adventurous in phase one I would stick to the food list pretty close and then branch out in phase 2 after you learn some healthy habits. I am sure it is not only the carbs but the negative effects on you blood sugar that makes flour not a good choice in the beginning. Just a thought.

    If you must have pizza there are recipes for cauliflower crusts out there. But really cheeses are out in phase 1 too. I think I’m with Jennifer. Keep to the list and recipes online. As a person who used to eat pizza on a very regular basis I do miss it a little (when my husband is eating it in front of me!) but I’m eating so healthy now that I feel better making the better food choices. I think food substitutes get to a point that pizza no longer tastes like pizza anyway. I mean, will you really get pleasure from cauliflower crust? I’d think about how you are feeling mentally about the food you are trying to make. Maybe I’m thinking too deep!

    There are some really good cauliflower crust recipes on Pinterest but in phase one we can’t have cheese. I don’t think you will be able to make a good healthy pizza with having a little cheese.
